I have 3 droplets, none of the three connect, ex: telnet smtp.gmail.com 465

I don’t have any domain appointed…

Any idea?

@Aday: Please file a support ticket if you can’t connect to port 587 on remote servers.

Any update in this issue!? <br>I have the same issue I try with 587 port to but no success… <br> <br>Any idea? <br>

@igorprado: I believe this was resolved on IRC :)

I’m having the same issue… Can’t connect using openssl: <br> <br>openssl s_client -connect smtp.gmail.com:465 <br>connect: Connection timed out <br>connect:errno=110 <br> <br>openssl s_client -connect smtp.gmail.com:587 <br>connect: Connection timed out <br>connect:errno=110 <br> <br>I’m using CSF.

What error do you get? Can you also try port 587?
